||Recombinant full length human arginase I protein produced inE. coli.
||Arginase is the fifth and final step in the urea cycle, a series of biophysical reactions in mammals during which the body disposes of harmful ammonia. Specifically, arginase converts L-arginine into L-ornithine and urea. In most mammals, two isozymes of this enzyme exist; the first, Arginase I, functions in the urea cycle, and is located primarily in the cytoplasm of the liver.
||Liquid. In 10mM TRIS-HCl, pH 7.5, containing 1mM β-mercaptoethanol, 1mM MnCl2 and 50% glycerol.
||±2.0U/µg protein. One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme that converts 1µmol of L-arginine to L-ornithine and urea per min. at 37°C, pH 9.5 (R.T. Schminke, et al.; J. Biol. Chem. 238, 1012 (1962)).
